Conclusion: This is the second kit that I have purchased. I have one that I keep in my shoes at the Y as I change from street shoes at the Y into trainers. I recently purchased custom made ID running/training shoes for everyday wear, so I bought another. I have an iPod nano and 2 iPod Touches.
Apple Nike + iPod Sport Kit: Nike+: Novelty or motivational tool?
6 March 2010
Summary: Nike+ is a system of planning, tracking, and measuring runs while listening to your favourite -- or most motivational -- music. To do this you need to buy a few things first:
* An iPod Nano and The Nike+ Sports Kit (which consists of an oval-shaped sensor and a rectangular receiver that connects to the iPod)
Alternatively, if you have an iPhone or iPod touch you only need to buy the sensor -- which is half the price on its own.
Summary: Following a knee injury I decided it would be better to have pair of running trainers instead of normal everday trainers for going out jogging. I heard about this Nike+ iPod Sport Kit and bought it along with Nike+ trainers to go along with it.
~~~What is it?~~~
The Apple Nike+ iPod Sport Kit comes with a small sensor which fits under the sole of your left Nike+ running shoe, or if you don't have Nike+ trainers then you can buy a pouch which can be tied to your laces,...
Summary: I've always been quite an active person and a keen runner. Recently I have been upping my game and starting to take running a bit more seriously. I would be mapping my runs and timing how long it takes me to cover the distance with the trusty stopwatch. This isn't always practical and doesn't really give you an accurate account of the exercise you have been doing.
Enter the Nike+ Sport kit.
Summary: I promised myself that this would be the summer to kick start my fitness regime, and with limited funds, I didn't want to join a gym, so I decided to take up running. As a self-confessed couch potato, I needed something that would motivate me. Enter, Nike+ Sensor. So, I invested in a sensor that was £12 from eBay). As I had an iPod Touch, I didn't require the sport kit. You do if you have an iPod Nano though.
Excerpt: Pratique pour courir avec son Ipod mais le problème c'est que ce n'est qu'un vulgaire podomètre donc ce n'est pas très précis et qu'il faut l'étalonner et respecter ensuite toujours la même foulée.
